HERMON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- The Penobscot County Sheriffs Department is continuing its investigation into another case of alleged underage drinking involving Bangor High School students.

Eighteen-year-old Tyler Omlor of Glenburn was arrested on Sunday night outside of the Morgan Hill Event Center in Hermon. According to a police affidavit , Omlor allegedly assaulted officer Peter Garland of the Penobscot County Sheriffs Department causing Garland to twist his knee.

Garland was searching a limousine bus that Omlor and 13 other students came to the event center on to go to a dance. Authorities say the bus's driver notified a sheriffs deputy who had stopped by the dance that the students had alcohol on the bus. Police say the struggle ensued after Garland told Olmor to get off of the bus and the student refused.

Omlor was taken into custody and is facing criminal charges including assault of a police officer and resisting arrest. He appeared in court on Monday before being released on $1,000 bail.

Officials with the sheriffs department say that they plan to continue their investigation to determine where the alcohol came from and they add that more charges in the matter could be filed.
